Universal Access Transit Passes

This resource lists Universal Bus/Transit Pass (U-Pass) programs on campus. U-Passes provide students - and sometimes faculty and staff - with unrestricted local transit service 24 hours per day. The most common source of funding is student fees; but many programs are also funded by parking fees and general funds. These programs have proven very effective in increasing public transportation use and decreasing single occupancy vehicle commutes to campus. Programs below are categorized according to whether the pass entitles the bearer to unlimited free rides or a 50% or greater discount.
